This park is an old KOA near the Canada Olympic Park just on the western edge of Calgary. We have stayed here several times. Frankly, it is the best of the RV Campgrounds in Calgary. The rest would likely rate a 3 star. Previous reviewers have pointed out a number of deficiencies and for the most part they are correct. However, if you get located down in the lower part of the campground around A35 the sites are leveller. You are about 6 miles away from major shopping (Nose Hill Dr. and Crowchild Trail) with easy access. There is also a Museum at the COP next door, which is fun to visit. This can be a busy campground in season so reservations are highly recommended. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The people that own and run this park are NOT RV'ers and do not understand the RV lifestyle. They would not allow propane fire pits or BBQ's or brickett BBQ's. When we tried to explain "propane" the owners yelled at us and threatened to call the police to have us evicted. We tried to sit outside and watch a movie - the volume was not loud at all, but the owners told us we had to shut the TV off at 10 pm. The RV sites face into each others front yard, so you have to share space with people you don't even know. The lots are unlevel and the roads are gravel with tons of pot holes. You have to share a 30 amp service with the RV that backs up against you (no space at all) so if both RV's turn on the microwave at the same time, you blow breakers outside. This may be the WORST RV park I have ever stayed in because the owners are very rude and have no appreciation of what RV'ing is all about. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

All of the roads are gravel and had many ruts. Sites are not level. All of the picnic tables we saw (including ours) were on hills...none were level. The tent areas were nice, all with a stationary, covered picnic table. There's plenty for kids to do...a heated pool, miniature golf. Location is next to the 1988 Olympic ski-jumping, luge and bobsled tracks. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park in mid June. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of this park. The staff were very friendly and pleasant. The kids loved the swimming pool. We don't understand why some reviews are so negative. The review stating the swimming pool was green slime with a picnic table table floating in it is ridiculous.This person says he was visiting the park in April,the swimming pool opens on June 21st. The pool is closed in April with no water. I believe that the reviews of campgrounds are an important tool for campers to gauge where they might stay. I use them, but I can recognize trash talk when I see it. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in April so it wasn't very busy. Great location, not far from town. Staff were friendly, laundry was clean and so were the showers. Very quiet. Excellent Wi-Fi. The site was not level but we just dealt with it. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a former KOA park that hasn't kept up with the times. We stayed there during the Calgary Stampede, so the park was very crowded. It's well-located, but lacking in most other respects. We were assigned a back-in site which had shared utilities with a neighboring RV. The temperatures were very hot, so I'd asked for a 30 amp site (50 amp isn't available). It turns out that there is only one 30 amp circuit between two sites, so access to the 30 amp is 'first come first served'. Our neighbor had been there for three days when we arrived so that we were relegated to 20 amps, not really enough to run Winnebago's basement a/c. Although the park claims WiFi, it is painfully slow at the site location. In order to get an acceptable signal, one must go to the office. Fortunately we were only there for a few days, but next time I'll look for another park. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived around 2: pm. There were many spots available. They stuck us in a storage lot. I understand no sewer, or 50 amp. No big deal. These people must write their own reviews. This is not a very nice place to stay. Too much money for what you get. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

Good location for us on the west side. Site was level, clean and plenty long enough for big rigs. The park design is to share hookups from a common location so that you have one rig facing east and one rig facing west which means not a lot of distance between the two. Other than that, no problems. I would most likely stay here again if going through Calgary again. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Restrooms were acceptable but would not call them clean. Park was crowded and needed more frequent attention. Trash around the building never picked up during our 3-day stay. Crowded park, sites very close together. Road and train noise was loud. Can't imagine anyone not hearing it throughout the night. We stayed without reservation during Stampede and paid for our lack of planning. Would not return. Overpriced for a site with no services, even during Stampede week. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Truck Camper.

The parking pads were level, but there was no level area for the table. We had water restrictions when we arrived and had to boil our water. Otherwise it was convenient to the train stations for attending the Calgary Stampede. We would stay there again. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very old RV park with 30 amp service only. The pull through sites are small and side by side leaving only inches between the slideouts. Getting into storage under the RV was difficult. The wifi was unusable at the site. The picnic area with table was on a sloped unmowed weedy hill. Both laundry rooms only had half of the machines operational. The young adults working in the office were nice, but did not know their park (directions) nor accurate information about nearby areas of Calgary. Driving through the park consisted of potholes in the gravel and rain trenches and a dumpster sitting halfway in the road. Not many choices in the Calgary area. We will not stay here again. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet location with no road noise. Check in staff were pleasant and helpful. Store was well stocked and prices were reasonable. Sites are small with two rigs parked side by side in pull-through sites. There is ample room to extend slides if both parties are courteous in their parking. Our neighbor had problem with 30 amp breaker tripping at less than 20 amps. Breakers appear to be old and some may be weak. We had no problems with ours when we were pulling 25 amps. It was below freezing at night and with all the electric heaters running voltage would drop to around 110 VAC. Wi-Fi was very strong in our spot (A-31). We would stay here again.

I am usually a pretty easy grader of campsites as we are totally self contained and have no pets, so our needs are usually just a place to park at night. Our experience with this place was pretty bad. We were assigned a space and plugged into the 30 amp plug. While we were out, the space next to us was assigned, and the person plugged into our same utility pole in the 20 amp outlet. At some point our progressive electrical management system shut down our RV as the voltage fell below 104 volts Thank heaven we have that feature on our RV. When we got back the voltage was still only reading 107, so we pretty much shut everything off and went to bed. The next morning as soon as the person next to us left,, the voltage went to 120. We went to the desk clerk and asked that no one be put in that spot for our final night, but they said they couldn't guarantee that. They agreed to move us. Just want to warn people that your electrical appliances can be at risk in this park. We will not stay here again. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.

Gravel roads with lots of dust. Small sites, very narrow. Many sites do not have a level spot for a picnic table or chairs. Some sites have one electrical box with a first come first service for use of the 30 amp service, you will need an extension cord for those sites. No privacy between sites at all. Bathrooms are old and generally disgusting, could use a couple of more showers. Store is almost empty. People are friendly and helpful. Buildings are old and in need of repair and paint. Pool is clean but man was it cold. Wi-Fi at main building. We camped at Calgary West Campground in a Motorhome.
